Exhibition space that you can customise for your London event

There are some events that you can think of as painting by numbers. Then there are other events that you might consider modern art: they’re one-off, one-of-a-kind, and one heck of a task to get your head around. This is where you might find yourself wishing for event space that you can really shape to fit your needs. If so, this is where we say: we’ve got just the rooms for you.

The Max Rayne Foyer (here’s a handy pfd about the foyer), Cavendish Room, and Max Rayne Atrium are our private event and exhibition spaces, for when you want to make an event uniquely your own. Each can be used as a stand alone space, or to enhance and add to a larger conference.

Our exhibition spaces can be set up in a variety of styles – from standing buffets to seated dinners – and hold up to a maximum of 200 people. We can also light them using wireless LED lights, which you can match to absolutely any colour. So that means we can get your event looking exactly as you want it to, right down to the Pantone reference.

Exhibition space for up to 200 people

What kind of vision are you trying to bring to life? A private view, a product launch, a canapé reception, a black-tie charity fundraiser? Our private event and exhibition areas spaces provide a versatile blank canvas for you to use as you wish.

The Max Rayne Foyer (here’s a pdf of the foyer) and the Cavendish Room both hold up to 200 people. They can be set up in a variety of styles to reflect the tone of your event, from informal standing buffet or reception style to more formal banqueting style. Max Rayne also notably features a vaulted glass ceiling, providing plenty of natural light that is particularly desirable for product exhibitions or launches.

For smaller events, the Max Rayne Atrium holds up to 150 people in theatre-style. It offers a comfortable catering or reception space, especially if you’re holding a conference in the adjacent Max Rayne Auditorium or a meeting in the Toynbee-Mackenzie ENT Room.

All of our exhibition rooms can be set up with a variety of audio visual equipment, including staging and a PA system – so you can really feel like the space is your own. Our in-house AV team can also enhance the overall look of your event, with bespoke LED lighting that ties back to your brand colour or another theme that you would like to follow. So in other words, we’ll give you full freedom to produce your event, your way.

Thank you very much for all your help in planning last evening’s event. It ran very smoothly and was a huge success! Thank you AV Team as well!

Caitlin MacDonald, Progressive Media

Thanks to you and all the staff at RSM, in particular Karen, Dionne, JJ and reception team.  As always they are all so incredibly helpful which makes the event so much smoother.

Please pass on to all – and thanks again to you, for your patience with me as I make changes until the last minute!

Steph Maunders, Frogmore

I know when I came to do the site visit earlier this year I was impressed with the facilities and what you had to offer.  Now having held an event at the venue, I know that everything you promised was true. The service from the minute you walk in the door to the minute you leave, is excellent. I hope we can put other events to the venue.


From the whole Woolf family thank you all so much for facilitating such an excellent party for Dad. Your staff were all wonderful – the service was faultless, the food was very good and the venue was impeccable. We are all extremely grateful to everyone at 1 Wimpole Street for making our event such a success.

Serena Woolf, N/a Private Party

1 Wimpole Street is an excellent venue with great conference & AV facilities, good catering and above all exceptional staff.
